The city of Takoma Park is alerting residents of a public meeting regarding the closure of a MD-195 bridge over Sligo Creek in the city. The bridge is slated for a facelift to modernize the bridge. The State Highway Administration is holding a public meeting next month to review the changes planned for the bridge.
"The MD 195 (Carroll Avenue) bridge over Sligo Creek and Sligo Creek Parkway is scheduled for major rehabilitation starting in Spring 2015. The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will replace the bridge deck, sidewalk, and railings, and rehabilitate major elements of the bridge including the beams and columns that support the deck above the two arches. In order to complete the necessary work safely, the bridge will be closed and traffic will be detoured during construction.
For additional information, you are invited to attend a Public Meeting on October 2, 2013.
The Informational Workshop will acquaint the public with the project. Display boards will show operational and safety improvements, and SHA representatives will be available to discuss project issues and answer questions concerning construction. No formal presentation will be given. Feel free to arrive at any time and walk through at your own pace."
